A Special Stay

Review of Ardconnel B&B
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 31 Aug 2022via mobile
Such a lovely stay! Our hostess, Theresa, is a helpful gal who cooks up a terrific breakfast. Our room was tastefully decorated & featured many Orkney details. Situated a mile from Kirkwell harbor among bucolic scenery and big vistas, it can be delightful to walk home after a dinner in town. But you know, there are many B&Bs out there that get a lot of things right, but yet you don't enjoy your time there. I have found that a lot of it has to do with the management. Theresa really has this down pat! She stays on top of all the details. She has great suggestions for your stay, and is a lot of fun to chat with when you come in after a day of adventures. A hostess like her can make all the difference between a regular stay and a special stay!
Date of stay: August 2022
Room Tip: Be sure and book well in advance as this is a well regarded property. But it's always worth...
Trip type: Travelled as a couple

Theresa was very accommodating. The food was delicious. The rooms were exceptionally clean. The location was quiet and nice. My older son says this is the best bed-and-breakfast he’s ever stayed. The rooms had coffee, tea and biscuits. There were charging stations for electric vehicles.

The shower water was a bit hard to regulate, but that was a small inconvenience compared to how great the B&B was in general.

Would absolutely stay here again.

Orkney is a wonderful place to visit. We spent 8 days at Kirkwall recently and unfortunately contracted Covid but Theresa was magnificent, giving us a special table outside our room for breakfast and even making us a ready meal in the evening when we felt we had to self-isolate.
This is a lovely quiet guest house slightly away from the centre but excellent value with many extras provided, a very modern bathroom and a great breakfast. I particularly liked the black out blind which is essential in June in the land of the midnight sun!

Room tip: Small windows are good if you find sleeping difficult with the long hours of daylight.

My husband and I spent a week in Orkney (4/6/22-11/6/22) and stayed in this excellent B+B. I can’t rate it highly enough. The decor was tasteful and the room was well equipped and very comfortable. Breakfast was very good- plenty of choice and beautifully presented.
Teresa ( owner) was very friendly and a great source of information.
You can’t go wrong if you stay here.

Located within walking distance from the center of Kirkwall, surrounded by beautiful country fields and nature. Would watch the cows and hares running around the adjoining fields.
Rooms were spacious comfortable and lovely to stay in. Breakfast was hearty and customizable to personal preferences. And very tasty as well.
A very welcoming warm personal atmosphere. The hostess was very generous and helpful and we really enjoyed talking with her during our stay.
Don't miss this place.
